Gibson CS-336F 2000 – “Stunning” doesn’t quite describe this guitar. A ES-336 guitar from the Custom division with uber flame maple body and a beautiful Tangerine Burst finish. NMC HSC $2495.

Gibson L-50 late 30s – This is one you don’t see very often. A early version of the acoustic L-50 archtop when it was only less than 15 inches wide on the lower bout and had a round soundhole, instead of F-holes. Think old times blues, Robert Johnson-style. That’s the vibe it gives off. Hope to get this one on the sales floor very soon. VGC-, HSC $2195.
